Life line oil pastel on paper by “E” age 17
This young restrictor drew her life from left to right – happy childhood, lots of moves around the world, the friendship of her popular sister, and a loss of self in early adolescence. Food and weight became the one thing she could control until she became ill, messed up and sought help. She has wisely chosen to open a new door to recovery. She draws a life founded on love. Above that her right brain sent her a clear message that she must EAT. The patient next to E. saw it first, the little buildings spelling “EAT”, and pointed it out. We all saw it. As the importance of it was sinking in, God cleared his throat in that room.
